Audition Information

At a Glance tenor   

Surfside no longer requires patrons to wear a mask while seated but we do ask everyone to wear a mask when entering the building. Once you arrive at your seat, you may remove your mask if you are inclined to do so. Please remember that many are still not vacinated. We protect our own so please act accordingly. If you have not been vacinated, we highly recomend that you keep your mask on except for when you are auditioning on stage.

Please look at the following bullet points to see how the process has changed:

  • Always apply the 6ft distancing rule when attending auditions. We will consider this as part of our onstage audition guidelines as well. 
  • You will be asked to attend only one night of auditions. 

Our season schedule contains the audition and performance dates for our six mainstage shows.  We will post more details at least two weeks in advance of each audition.

Unless otherwise specified, auditions are as follows:

  •  Auditions are on a Sunday and Monday at 7:00pm.  The doors will open at 6:30.
  • Auditioners only need to attend one audition.  Wear comfortable clothing and shoes.  No prior experience or resume is required.
  • A prepared piece is not required. 
  • Every auditioner will be notified by phone of their result, before the full cast list is announced publicly.
  • Surfside does not precast roles....ever.

Auditions will consist of:

Musicals & Non-Musicals          

Cold readings from the script

Musicals Only                          

Each auditioneer will be taught a 30 second selection of music from the show.

Performances Nov 5 - 21
 
This benchmark of Broadway comedy produced one of the theatre's most beloved roles: unconventional Murray, uncle to precocious nephew, Nick. Tired of writing cheap comedy gags for "Chipper the Chipmunk", a children's television star, Murray finds himself unemployed with plenty of free time with which to pursue his...pursuits. Lectured by his conventional brother Arnold and hounded by "the system", Murray is paid a visit by bickering, uptight social workers, Sandra and Albert, and finds himself solving their problems as well as most of his own.
 

Cast of Characters

Murray Burns: Male, Playing 45 - 60
Leading character man with leading man qualities. Renegade, free thinker (play takes place in the 60’s) that would rather “fight the system.” An unemployed writer, who had been previously employed by NBC scripting children’s TV for “The Chuckles the Chipmunk Show” show, but quit out of frustration. Although he’s disgruntled, he has a remarkable sense of humor.
Ethnicity: All Ethnicities

Nick / Nicky Burns : Male or Female, Playing 11 - 13
Murray's nephew, lives with Murray in a small Manhattan apartment. Precocious to the 10th power. Very well spoken. Like a sophisticated mini-adult.
Ethnicity: All Ethnicities

Albert Amundson : Male, Adult
very stiff and stuffy. Graduate of NYU’s School of Social work and he is void of humor. Strictly business.
Ethnicity: All Ethnicities

Sandra Markowitz: Female, Playing 25-35
pretty, wears business clothes that would much more suited to a much older woman. Carries a certain naiveté.
Ethnicity: All Ethnicities

Arnold Burns : Male, Playing 50 - 60s
Murray’s older brother and his agent. Dignified, well dressed man. Straight and narrow, by the book.
Ethnicity: All Ethnicities

Leo Herman: Male, Playing 50s
Bigger than life. He plays “Chuckles” on the show Murray used to write. Wants Murray back because the show is tanking. A very bad listener.
Ethnicity: All Ethnicities
